[Pride In Horror Month] Following the Dead Tracks: A Short Story

Trigger Warning: May contain sensitive content. 1 What was it Kyle said? On Tuesday nights, he goes for midnight walks. That must be why he’s not answering his phone. Maybe he doesn’t take it with him. I suppose I never asked. There’s still so much I don’t know about my new boyfriend. It’s only beenContinue reading “[Pride In Horror Month] Following the Dead Tracks: A Short Story”

[Pride In Horror Month] – Representation Matters

Okay, here’s something important, something I think many people are aware of but just in case you’re not aware of it: representation is important.

[Review] – The Fucking Zombie Apocalypse

By Bryan Smith By my count, this is Smith’s 41st published work and I guess he wanted to celebrate this by putting the word “fucking” in one of his book titles. As he should.  The more that I think about it, the more I believe he should’ve put this word in all of his titles: Fucking KillContinue reading “[Review] – The Fucking Zombie Apocalypse”

[Review] – Piece of Me

By Steve Stred Frostbitten: 12 Hymns of Misery was the third or fourth book I read by Steve Stred in 2019. It was also my first time entering the world you’ll find in Piece of Me, thanks to the story, “For Balder Walks.” It was bleak, enigmatically magical, and frigid – I literally got chillsContinue reading “[Review] – Piece of Me”

[Review] – The Brides of Hanover Block

By Gregor Xane Gregor Xane is fastly becoming my favorite Bizarro(?) author. Is that what you call it? Edward Lorn is on record saying that you can call Gregor bizarro, but really he is a (speculative) fiction writer. Here is what I do know.
